Movie Info

The title tells all in this seventh entry in Universal's "Ma and Pa Kettle" series. This time around, Ma (Marjorie Main) and Pa (Percy Kilbride) take their brood to Hawaii, where Pa is to take over management of his cousin's fruit processing operation. The villains are a group of rival businessmen who kidnap Pa and spirit him off to a remote island. Before long, however, it's the bad guys who need rescuing. Some of the funnier scenes involve Ma and Pa's Hawaiian counterparts, played by Hilo Hattie and Charley Lung. With this entry, Percy Kilbride bade adieu to the role of Pa Kettle, leaving Marjorie Main to carry on alone in the remaining two series installments.

Audience Reviews for Ma and Pa Kettle at Waikiki

I'm not normally a fan of classic movies. However, my husband bought a few VHS tapes of the Ma & Pa Kettle series and I found them to be cute.

Watching Ma & Pa Kettle films remind me of my youth. Coming home from church on Sundays and gathering around the TV set.
